Geb, founder and overlord of his namesake nation, is a powerful necromancer whose magic is in the tradition of ancient Osirion.[1]

Background

Geb came from a noble house that was exiled from Osirion, and thereafter became the ruler of the land to the south that now bears his name. During the early years of his rule over the nation of Geb, his overriding passion is his rivalry with the Archmage Nex. Their respective lands first went to war in -892 AR. Both used powerful magic to extend their lives, so the conflict lasted for centuries. It was responsible for the creation of the Mana Wastes.

Geb won the contest in 576 AR when Nex disappeared during a magical attack on his capital of Quantium. Uncertainty as to Nex's exact fate ate away at Geb, and in 632 AR he committed ritual suicide. However, his obsession with Nex could not be ended so easily; Geb rose as a ghost, unable to find rest until he can convince himself that Nex has truly been defeated. Nex has not been seen for four millennia, but Geb still worries that his rival has somehow managed to survive.

In 3890 AR, Geb stole the corpse of Arazni from the Knights of Ozem and reanimated her as a lich. For many centuries, Geb rarely appeared before his people, leaving Arazni to rule in his stead.[2] However, he still took a personal interest when his realm was threatened. For example, in 4329 AR, he turned an invading army of warrior women to stone, creating the Field of Maidens.[3]

In 4719 AR, after Arazni's disappearance, Geb returned to active rulership and began preparing his nation for a grand destiny, as he was certain that his old rival Nex was returning soon.[4]
